Youth Evening Beginner Sailing Course

We run two youth beginner evening courses from 15th April to 17th June and from 14th June to 26th September. The classes are ten 2hr sessions out on Cardiff Bay and will get everyone out on the water and enjoy their first time sailing. These are open to everyone aged 8 - 16, with plenty of opportunities to get in control of their boats while having a great time. We will be working towards RYA stage 1 and 2 of the youth sailing scheme that is the first step to a fulfilling childhood sailing. These camps are an excellent opportunity to get out on the water and get lots of sailing while having a great time and gaining valuable qualifications

Our team are on hand to support you.
